A pair of bantamweight battlers will hook 'em up at the UFC 151: "Jones vs. Henderson" event scheduled for Sept. 1, 2012, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Takeya Mizugaki takes on Jeff Hougland.

MMAWeekly.com brought word of the pending contest earlier today.

In his last nine bouts, Mizugaki is just 4-5, having continued the same pattern of win-one, lose-one since his World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) debut in April 2009. His most recent defeat, a split decision loss to Chris Cariaso was mired in controversy, however. UFC President Dana White felt strongly enough that the judges got it wrong he paid Mizugaki his win bonus.

Set to take him on next is Hougland, who won his Octagon debut in the summer of last year but took nearly a year off and looked badly over-matched in a loss to Yves Jabouin just this past May 15 at UFC on FUEL TV 3.

UFC 151 will feature a light heavyweight championship showdown pitting division champion Jon Jones continuing his assault on the 205-pound weight class by taking on former Strikeforce straphanger Dan Henderson. The only other bout rumored for the card at this time is a featherweight fracas pitting Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin.
